Successful ACO has second venture in the works
Sacramento Business Journal

Buoyed by success in the Sacramento market, the founder at Golden Life Healthcare has a second accountable care organization in the works.

Dr. Venu Kondle is working with Keely Smith, CEO of Sierra Nevada Medical Associates in Grass Valley, on the venture. The plan is for a group of 170 doctors to manage care for some 15,000 Medicare patients in 10 counties. Unlike the initial Sacramento venture, this one hopes to work with hospitals, too.
